QuestionCopyright.org: Street Interviews About Copyright, Chicago, June 2006
In order to document the public perception of copyright today, we went around Chicago with a video camera over two days in the summer of 2006, asking strangers what they think copyright is for, how it got started, how they feel about filesharing, and for any other thoughts they have on copyright. We didn't tell the interviewees about QuestionCopyright.org
's mission until after each interview was over.
